Could the Prime Minister genuinely help me? Paragraph 9 of his explanatory note says that

“traders moving goods from Great Britain to Northern Ireland would need…
A new notification requirement” regarding

“the nature of the goods in the consignment…
people sending (exporting) and receiving (importing) the goods…
where the goods will depart and arrive” and that these arrangements will not be effective until the transition period is completed.

As Lady Hermon said, that is effectively a second border. Can the Prime Minister tell the House how many of those transactions he anticipates each year, and what the cost would be to businesses and to the Government in establishing that system?
